Description

CARITAS receives all shelter placement referrals through coordinated entry. CARITAS emergency shelters are committed to providing a place of shelter and support for every individual who passes through our doors. We accomplish this through a network of partner congregations. CARITAS emergency shelter programs provide case management that focuses on developing a Housing Stabilization plan. This individualized plan identifies barriers to housing, establishes housing goals and identifies the steps that are necessary for individuals and families to exit shelter and return to self-sufficiency.

                  At the CARITAS Furniture Bank, we understand that paying rent is not the only financial obstacle to securing housing. We provide gently-used household essentials and furnishings to families and individuals in need in Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield. Clients must be referred to us by one of our Referral Partners, as we only schedule clients referred to us by our Partners. We charge a minimal program fee, and provide a volunteer personal shopper so that each client receives the items they need. Furniture and household essentials are given based on need and inventory available at the time of appointment. Depending on inventory, we are committed to providing beds, a sofa, a dining table, a dresser, and other essentials.
